The governor and chief security officer of Edo state, Godwin Obaseki, just rose from a crisis meeting after he received situation report that PDP had cleared Edo South senatorial district elections and they would soon be announce winners. PDP is set to produce the senator and the 4 house of representatives member from the district.
The governor has ordered the invasion, snatching of ballot boxes and result sheets in selected collation centres in the district. The governors in house thugs and hoodlums were ordered to cause mayhem, vandalise the centres and possibly set same on fire.
This order is to be carried out under the cover of darkness. It is imminent!
We call on the governor to reconsider this unlawful order if for nothing else, he is the governor. Edo people will hold him responsible for the unnecessary blood he is about to spill on Benin land.
The police and DSS are hereby put on notice that we will defend ourself if our mandate is threatened and they freign ignorance.
Mr Governor, there is a saying that we know where we set the fire, but we won’t know who, where and what will be consumed!
A word is enough for the wise!!
